Burnett had five tackles (three solo) during Thursday's 52-21 win over Carolina.
A nagging groin injured that forced him to miss several games earlier this season seems to be fully recovered, and he now has 10 tackles in his past two games. Heading in to a Week 11 game against Jacksonville Burnett has no passes defended and no interceptions, seriously limiting his fantasy value.
Burnett has remained sidelined due to a lingering groin injury since Week 2, but appears to be nearing a full recovery. "It felt good to be able to participate and get back in the normal flow of things," Burnett said. If the veteran safety can continue to fully participate in practice, he appears on track to suit up against the Browns on Sunday.
Burnett (groin) logged a partial practice Monday and could play Sunday against the Browns, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.
The former third-round pick has been dealing with a groin injury and has not seen the field since Week 2 against the Chiefs. The fact that Burnett is at least practicing in limited fashion is a positive sign for his Week 8 availability. It's unclear whether Burnett would assume the starting job if he's able to play in Week 8. If he doesn't suit up, however, Terrell Edmunds would likely continue to start at safety.
Burnett (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.
Burnett didn't log a practice this week and hasn't played since Week 2 against the Chiefs. In his absence, fellow safety Terrell Edmunds has gotten at least 70 defensive snaps per game. That volume is likely to continue with Burnett sidelined again.
Burnett was unable to participate in practice Thursday and Friday after limited participation Wednesday, so his outlook for Sunday in terms of potential availability worsened throughout the week. If Burnett is unable to suit up Week 5, Terrell Edmunds would be in line to draw his fourth start of the season at strong safety.
